Chapter 9. iPod as Calendar > Calendars from iCal (Macintosh)

9.3. Calendars from iCal (Macintosh)

If you record your life in iCal, Apple's free desktop calendar program for Mac OS X, you're in luck. Perhaps not surprisingly, the iPod has an excellent rapport with its i-named sibling.

9.3.1. The Easy Way

Getting your iCal calendar onto the iPod is simple: you just use Apple's free iSync program, exactly as described in Chapter 11. It automatically synchronizes and updates complete iCal calendars between the Macintosh and the iPod. (In iCal lingo, a calendar is one category, or set, of appointments. You might have three, called Home, Work, and Rotary Club—or Dad, Mom, and Deb. iCal color-codes your appointments to show what calendar they belong to, as shown in Figure 9-1.)
